GiveGab raises $1.6M to inspire and manage volunteers
Social network for volunteers GiveGab has debuted a new suite of tools to help organizations manage all their volunteer activities. The Ithaca, New York-based company also says it has closed $1.6 million in funding.
GiveGab connects aspiring volunteers with positions that match their skills and interests. It has worked with more than 1,500 nonprofits and nearly 200 colleges and universities to post volunteer opportunities. Its new premium services suite gives these organizations tools for building online profiles, promoting events, programs, and opportunities, creating reporting on volunteer activity, and measuring progress. They can quantify their programs and gain greater insight into why certain programs are popular and how much of an impact the volunteers are having.
